For my current project, I've used the following feet:
Ruffler, automatic buttonhole, role and shell, edge stitcher, regular ol' straight stitch.
It makes such a difference to use the correct feet for your project.
Read your user's manual or take a class at your local sewing machine retailer and it will open up a world of possibilities.
Or, come on over and I'll talk feet with you. For hours. I know, I'm pathetic.
Warm enough to do my hand stitching outside. Lovely.
